The Black Powder distillery is a family run business that has been producing fruit infused gins for a number of years. Due to increased popularity in these products, and their own intrigue and curiosity in the versatility of this exciting libation, they decided to extend their range by developing both a London Dry & Navy Strength gin. With an abundance of natural ingredients at their fingertips they set about developing recipes that capture the quintessential essence of these traditional gins but with a greater emphasis on breathing a new and exciting life into them.
“What’s in a name?”
The Black Powder name principally derives from the traditional method of proof testing alcohol by using black powder (also referred to as gunpowder) as a way of determining its strength. Furthermore, the ‘black’ prefix ties in with their other passion, notably the Aberdeen Angus & striking Black Shires.
